Norwich City and Liverpool put their Premier League campaigns to one side when they meet in the EFL Cup third round on Tuesday at 7.45pm (UK time).
Contrasting fortunes have followed these clubs so far this season, with Norwich currently bottom of the Premier League table without a single point, while the Reds are leading the charge alongside Chelsea, with the table-toppers on the exact same points, and goal difference.

Norwich City vs Liverpool build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Norwich have been a bit of a yo-yo club in recent years but Daniel Farke will be determined to consolidate the Canaries’ position in the Premier League, though before he can begin to prep for an ominous away trip to Everton this weekend, he must first take on another Merseyside giant in Liverpool on Tuesday. The Reds have made Carrow Road their playground in recent times, but Norwich enter this round have thrashed Bournemouth 6-0 last time out.
All that is missing from Klopp’s Liverpool CV is domestic cup silverware, not that the absence of an EFL Cup winner’s medal will tarnish his legacy, but he will surely be eyeing up a run in this competition to further enhance his reputation at Anfield and pick up another trophy. With European obligations, Liverpool enter the EFL Cup for the first time this season, looking to end a nine-year wait for success in this tournament.
- Norwich City (vs Watford): Krul; Aarons, Kabak, Hanley, Williams; Gilmour, Normann, McLean; Sargent, Rashica, Pukki.
- Liverpool (vs Crystal Palace): Alisson; Milner, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane.
Christoph Zimmermann, Przemyslaw Placheta and Sam Byram are all currently ruled out for the hosts, while Bali Mumba and Jakob Sorensen are touch and go to make the matchday squad. For Liverpool, Harvey Elliott remains sidelined indefinitely, while Thiago sustained a calf issue in the win over Crystal Palace, but Klopp revealed in his post-match press conference that he is optimistic the injury is only minor. “He felt his calf and now we hope really it is not that serious,” he said. Trent Alexander-Arnold is also ruled out but is expected to return this weekend, while Roberto Firmino is nearing a return and could feature here.

Player to watch: James Milner (Liverpool)
James Milner will turn 36 this year but he continues to hold a very important role in Klopp’s squad. The veteran utility man certainly does not start every week, but when called upon he is always ready to slot in and do a job, as shown at the weekend as he played as an auxiliary right-back in the absence of Alexander-Arnold. Given his professionalism, versatility and commitment, Milner is simply a manager’s dream, setting a fine example to some of the younger players and continuing to maintain his elite levels of fitness so he can compete at the highest level. For an EFL Cup third round, Milner is the perfect player to turn to. With rotation expected from Klopp, the guidance, experience and know-how of Milner will help alleviate any major changes that could cause disruption to Liverpool’s pattern of play. You need an element of savvy to get through autumnal midweek matches in England, and Milner epitomises that ‘Tuesday night’ cup shrewdness.
